We had a quite Superbowl in with me trying out recipes for the blog this week and Ryan attempting to help (he gets an A for effort)! Even though I am not much of a football fan I am a big sports fan and any sport I watch I can’t help but to get invested… I thank my dad for this little personality trait! I was so very happy when
Gisele’s Tom Brady’s team won for the fact that Tom hadn’t won a Superbowl in ten years and it just made him feel like the underdog to me even though he is one of the best quarterbacks of all time!! Okay enough of me trying to talk football….. lets move on to what we ate during the game- that is MUCH more my area of expertise!!
My husband loves Chinese food and so do I but I usually try to avoid Chinese food restaurants due to their less than healthy ingredients, over the top sodium content and fried everything. So after the popularity of the pesto chicken recipe from last week I wanted to give Chinese stir-fry try and on my second attempt with this recipe we hit it out of the park!!! This recipe was perfect for the superbowl yesterday I also made a pot of brown rice for my husband and he added rice to his bowl, I just had the beef and vegetables! You will love this dish because it feels like you are being over the top indulgent but really it fits perfectly into your lifestyle so go ahead and enough some healthy Chinese food!!
